Memphis enjoys a food and restaurant scene which grows in depth and diversity each year. Long an integral part of our history, black-owned eateries offer some of the best food in the Bluff City.
Memphis Black Restaurant Week celebrates the culinary contributions of black-owned restaurants and eateries while reaching out to new customers. Black Restaurant Week also champions the cause for increasing black wealth in a city known for limited economic opportunities for black-owned businesses.
Eating for a good cause nourishes you and your community. Place at the Table challenges you to visit at least two of the participating black-owned eateries listed below during March 6-12, 2017 and continue to patronize these businesses throughout the year. During your visits, “check into” that restaurant on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with a photo of your food and the following hashtags: #MBRW17 and #BRW901.
